After wearing myself out gardening yesterday I spent the evening doing more work on my little Story Book Cottage. I got the chimney started. It needs some "tweeking" but it is about done. You will also notice I got more of the roof shingles done.

Even though I have been having fun making the doll house..... it is fall here... and that means garden and yard cleanup. So for the past three days I have spent time working in my gardens and yard doing fall clean up. I have left the Echinacea and Rudbeckia seed pods attached to their stems for feeding the birds. My cats sit in the window and go crazy when the birds come around to feed on the seed pods.

I was very happy to see how pretty my Sedum are this fall. I have it in several locations around the yard. It is always so nice to see it when my other plants are dying back or fading away.
One more day of good hard work and I should be ready for what ever comes our way weather wise.

I started on the shingles

I am happy to report that I actually got started on the shingles. They don't look that great at the moment but it gives you the idea. The house is supposed to look old with a saggy roof which is why the shingles are NOT going on straight. It takes longer that way too. But so far I am pleased. By doing this blog I am actually making myself keep up with this little project.

I am moving along with my latest project.

During the last couple of weeks I have spent a little bit of time each day, working on my latest tiny doll house. I have finally got the basic construction done. So I will post a couple of pictures of the progress. I hope to start adding details this week.

One picture is of the front the other of the inside. As you can see no roof yet. And the chimney needs work. But it is moving along.
